Arcade gamers rejoice, the Playcade is here to turn your ordinary gaming platform into a legitimate arcade cabinet complete with the essential accessories including traditional buttons, joysticks and even light faux coin slots for authentic flair. It’s the best thing to hit the industry since arcade bars and since it’s small in stature and works with just about any console, you’ll never have to deal with those worn out machines again.

The Playcade works with PCs, laptops, and consoles such as Playstation and Xbox and comes as a kit with everything you need to the assemble the gaming rig. It includes twelve 30mm solid color Sanwa pushbuttons, two 24mm solid color Sanwa pushbuttons, a pair of Sanwa JLF joysticks with matte color ball tops, tow classic dimpled top push buttons with player legend, illuminating coin buttons, two-player arcade controller with daily chain ground and input cables, and speakers complete with an amplifier set. Wow. According to the creator, the kit only takes about 45 minutes to assemble and prices for the full cabinet kit are around $507 and $307 for the empty cabinet kit. Both are available now.
